Our approach to cloud integration

Getting the desired business outcomes is not just about harnessing technology, but about a solid cloud integration strategy designed for an enterprise’s specific needs. It starts with business design and adherence to these principles throughout:

  • A mature governance framework to ensure cloud integration practices and tools are consistent and do not fragment
  • Clearly defined business outcomes and how cloud integration can be optimized from technology, vendor fitment, legacy interoperability, and security
  • Using cloud and integration as a means to improve customer experience
  • An integration strategy that meets today’s needs but is also flexible enough to accommodate changing market, operational and business conditions
  • Constant assessment and balancing of factors including time, budget, impact on dependencies and more

Frequently asked questions

What are cloud integration services?

Cloud integration services connect disparate cloud-based applications of enterprises to their on-premise data systems, or to other internal cloud-hosted systems thereby creating a single, cohesive and highly accessible data environment.

Cloud integration enables rapid data exchange across the entire organization, equipping enterprises to gain complete visibility over their data and leverage it for maximum value.

Cloud integration services include devising the right strategy to meet the specific business needs of the enterprise, rapid deployment of solutions to reduce time to value, and building solutions that break down data silos and facilitate data exchange.

What is a cloud integration platform?

Cloud integration platforms are the primary tools enterprises use to integrate their applications, data systems and third-party services thereby resolving cloud silos. Usually deployed as part of the integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) delivery model, cloud integration platforms enable enterprises to combine their disparate systems across multiple environments - on-premise, public and private cloud, a hybrid of the two, and multiple public clouds (multi-cloud).

What is cloud integration strategy?

An effective cloud integration strategy is the starting point of an organization’s effort to integrate its systems across multiple environments. Every cloud integration strategy will be slightly different, but their purpose is to provide:

Flexibility regarding how data is shared, stored, processed and accessed;

  • Greater operational efficiency and business agility through easier access to data and faster data analysis to launch and tweak new offers, for example;
  • Better customer experience due to better joined-up processes, for instance;
  • Modern could-based applications
  • Scalability to accommodate rapid changes without having to build capacity that is only used in peak times; and
  • Combined cloud applications and on-premises systems to create a whole greater than the sum of its parts

Our team of experts at Torry Harris Integration Solutions will work with your business to develop a cloud integration strategy that’s tailored to your specific requirements.

How does cloud integration work?

Cloud integration platforms utilize more agile, flexible and efficient technology than earlier/legacy solutions to facilitate seamless data exchange across vast data and cloud infrastructural space. While enterprises can build and deploy the tools needed to integrate cloud and on-premise environments themselves, out-of-the-box cloud integration platforms are generally more efficient and cost effective.

Importantly, cloud integration enables organizations to better access their data and create more seamless employee experiences without having to replace whole legacy systems. This is a significant benefit for many enterprises.

What are the different types of cloud integration?

Establishing the right architecture for hybrid cloud and multi-cloud scenarios is a critical success factor for working with AWS, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft’s Azure. Multi-cloud management that provide a single point of control, administration and governance are key, and there are many tools that can help execute the appropriate architecture. While integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) is one of many types of cloud integration solutions, these and other such tools can be applied across multiple scenarios. These include:

  • Cloud data integration: This involves connecting disparate data stores to give enterprises greater access and visibility over their data infrastructure.
  • Application integration: This involves connecting an enterprise’s library of applications, which also means integrating their independent functions and operations.
